Just published!! Special Issue on The Night — Bulletin of the Italian Geographical Society

Our LXNIGHTS colleague, Prof. Will Straw (McGill University, Canada) is one of the co-editors of this special issue on the urban night just published by the Bulletin of the Italian Geographical Society. With the title “Geographies of the night” this monographic issue of the Bulletin of the Italian Geographic Society brings together about twenty authors, geographers and others, interested in analyzing this dimension for a long time forgotten. After the first works of the late twentieth century, the articles presented here continue exploring this “ephemeral and cyclic space-time”, its “inhabitants” and their practices, but also the development of a transdisciplinary field of study such as ‘Night studies’ that associates numerous actors from even beyond the university research .
